100 Happy Days: Days 36 - 40

My (short-lived) productivity app, Carrot, came replete with an incentive kitty.  It's like it knows me!

Back from school on day 37, packing the little grey case for another run up to Edinburgh!
Coming in to land!

We got to stay with the gorgeous Laura, which is always  a treat.  Her flat is adorable, and her hospitality flawless!

I never tire of there being a castle slap bang in the middle of the city!

Day 39 was a lazy start and lunch at The Potting Shed with Laura.

Mmmmmmm, pork!

 Then we jumped into the car and heading out to the country to attend the evening reception of our sweet friends Ross and Emma.  Ross and I were in the same year in sixth form, and his little sister Jenna (yep, that one :)) and I are close.  Ross and Emma kindly invited us to the party!

Chris, the little one, and Jenna.  One of the cutest families I know!

Loved the chance to be on the same continent as my girl!

The new Mr & Mrs - two of the sweetest, funniest, loveliest people you'll ever have the good fortune to encounter!

I was jealous of their cake cutting sword!
 After the wedding we had the cunning plan to get the sleeper train back home.  The sleeper train of fail, I should add.  Many, many problems and errors later, we finally reached London three-and-a-bit hours late!  Straight to school and playing catch up all day.

Which is why day 40 is tea, and sitting, and cricket.


  1. Sitting and cricket sounds like a good plan to me! I so, so want to visit Scotland!

    1. I hope you can someday soon! It's such a wonderful place #biased.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
